BMW tuners - AC Schnitzer
AC Schnitzer ACS6 Coupé F13
F13 is the plain model designation of the third generation BMW 6-series Coupé which was officially presented to the public in October. The Aachen-based tuning specialists approached the project with fingertip sensitivity and technical know-how to make the new "star in the Coupé heaven" (to quote GQ magazine) into a true AC Schnitzer.

Engine tuning and performance upgrades have a long tradition at AC Schnitzer. To be on the safe side however, we prefer not to extract the maximum possible power but instead ensure greater robustness, which means a longer life of the engine. Many of our performance upgrades are therefore designed for an increase in torque rather than an increase in horsepower. Because torque is what you feel when for example you're "pressed back in the seat" on pulling away.
The largest of the available BMW power plants from the 650i has undergone a performance upgrade from 407 (standard) to 540 HP. Now the eight-cylinder engine races from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
This is complemented by the AC Schnitzer engine and engine bay styling, which demonstrates the power of the motor even when stopped. Complete with AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer including chromed "Sport Trim" tailpipes right and left, the 650i can be seen and above all heard from behind, too.
For the export market, the Aachen-based tuning experts have developed an 8-piston high performance brake system for the front, to match the increased drive power. The 8-piston fixed calipers on the right and left, the 8-piece set of brake linings and the caliper holders together ensure that the "Bavarian Coupé" scrubs off the speed rapidly and safely.
For engines and performance upgrades, we offer a warranty of two years from the date of first registration, up to a kilometre reading of 100,000 km (for M-vehicles, two years up to a kilometre reading of 60,000 km) on all components excluded from the BMW warranty.
The Suspension Technology
The hand of the BMW specialist has also been laid on the suspension. A new suspension spring kit is available which not only lowers the vehicle by 25 millimetres but also gives an improved balance between sports performance and driving comfort.
The flowing, sporting shape of the BMW 6-series Coupé is emphasised and given clearer contours by the AC Schnitzer aerodynamic conversion.
The front is enhanced with a front spoiler, a chromed front grille and chrome strips which can be fitted either as a set or individually.
AC Schnitzer also offers a rear spoiler an rear skirt insert and a loading edge protector film to give the body of the 6-series Coupé that finishing touch.
On the inside, the 6-series by AC Schnitzer lives up to its exterior promise. Sporting, sophisticated accessories which give an aura of motorsport ambience: a sports airbag steering wheel, the AC Schnitzer "Black Line" aluminium cover for the i-Drive System Controller, the AC Schnitzer aluminium foot rest and pedals, and bootand foot mats in velours.
The wheelarches can be perfectly filled with AC Schnitzer wheels and corresponding tyres in Type IV BiColor or silver, Type V forged alloy rims in BiColor or Type VIII in BiColor or as forged racing rims in BiColor. A totally new addition to the range is the Type VIII forged alloy wheel in BiColor in 21-inch, which weighs in at just a sensational 11.5 kg (9.0J x 21") or 11.9 kg (10.0J x 21"). So in comparison with standard wheels (star spoke 311) in 20-inch, these offer a weight saving of 30%. And that's despite the fact that the AC Schnitzer Type VIII forged alloy wheels are a full inch larger.
